being an avid Nokia fan, i need to ask this,i find this training surprising because we all now that Nokia plans to move to the .NET platform and i doubt if Qt could be ported to C#, besides Elop said Symbian will be killed 2012,so am a bit surprised about this,because i follow Qt very well Qt Quick and Qt Mobility are symbian related shouldn’t nokia be pushing Mango Developments rather.just my question

Hi Okeowo, Nokia is still pushing QT and Java technology for its platforms. You can check for more information. Mango is only for the smart phones. Nokia still has the S40 and S30 devices which accounts for the greater percentage of its portfolio.
